Skies of Arcadia is considered a very good game by the 5 people here (half the board) who've played it.

Skies of Arcadia developer Kenji Hiruta has renewed calls for a sequel to Sega's seminal sky-pirate RPG.

Hiruta worked as a programmer on the 2000 Dreamcast classic. Now, he's offered to send one fan an exclusive piece of artwork if they spread the word (thanks, VG247).

The art on offer here comes from Itsuki Hoshi, another Skies developer who worked as character artist on the game. All you need to do is retweet Hiruta's message below.

The idea behind all this is that Sega will take note and put its long-abandoned plans for a Skies of Arcadia 2 back into action. "I really really want to develop the sequel," Hiruta wrote.

It's a long shot. Skies of Arcadia is one of my favourite games of all time and while I'd love to see a sequel... it has been a very, very long time and Sega is now a very, very different company.

And yet, there's something about Skies of Arcadia which sticks in the memory, which makes me hope one day we'll get another journey in its world. Or at this point, just an easier way to play the game again rather than dusting off my worn Skies of Arcadia Legends director's cut GameCube disc.
